American Councils for International Education (American Councils) offers a Young Professional Internships Program to provide 30 Uzbek undergraduate business and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) majors with transformative internships at small and medium-sized businesses in Uzbekistan. Through a robust program of professional development, participants will gain practical work experience and a greater understanding of international business practices as they prepare to enter the competitive 21st century workforce.
The Young Professional Internships Program provides business mentors and dedicated staff as a built-in support system intended to maximize the internship experience and provide a meaningful, positive experience for interns.
The Young Professional Internships Program provides the opportunity for interns to work within a cohort, participate in professional development events, engage with industry leaders, and enter into a valuable network of peers. The Young Professional Internships Program is designed to: expand the professional capacity and network of young Uzbeks in the areas of business and STEM; and empower participants with the tools needed to become self-reliant learners.
Participants will be selected through a merit-based, open competition aimed at identifying future business and STEM leaders prepared to gain real-world experience in their field and in a cross-cultural environment prior to begin their careers. English language fluency is a program requirement.
A selection committee determines the finalists, and American Councils matches the finalists with suitable host companies in Uzbekistan. Each finalist interviews with two potential host companies before a final placement is determined.
American Councils provides dedicated internship placement to fit the interests and goals of interns. Interns will receive a stipend of US$250 to support their travel and living costs. A U.S. mentor guides career development goals during an orientation session and through online sessions during the program.
